It just needs to be connected to electricity and this tool will automatically work by itself. AUTOMOS workmanship takes about 1 week with a total cost of 2 million rupiah, "said Yusuf as the chairman of AUTOMOS.
Meanwhile, Track Recorder to Determine Spot Coordinate Points for the Visually Impaired (REDER VIRED), a blind aid, was initiated by Tofik Nurochman, Muhammad Iqbalul Faiq Hatta, and Ibnu Atma Kusnadi (Electrical Engineering). Thanks to the supervisor, Son Ali Akbar, S.T., M.Eng. this team won the 3rd place.
According to Tofik, the team leader of REDER VIRED, the making of this tool was initiated because of the large number of blind people who get lost while walking. The use of this tool is simple, only by utilizing the three available buttons. The three buttons are "button when getting lost", "button when being disturbed by people", and "button when being tricked people".
"When the button is pressed, the tool will automatically send a message to the family phone number that has been stored in the sim card of this tool," he explained.
Meanwhile, the team who got the favorite winner title invented Handwash Sanitizer, an environmentally friendly laundry soap. This team consisted of Donianto, Mita Prastika, M. Solihin Akbar (Chemical Engineering). (ard /doc)
